Reflecting a flower. 

 

Flac is a vase made of petrol blue enamelled clay. Modelled in one piece, it is composed of a vertical central support to hold the flower, and a horizontal saucer to hold the water. The vertical part is pierced at the base to allow the flower to feed itself by absorbing the water. The enamel on the vase shines, the water sparkles. It feeds the flower and reflects it, thus becoming an integral part of the object : the water is the mirror of the flower.

This small puddle diffuses and reflects the chosen flower, which is displayed through small waves. Hence the name of the object ("flaque" is the french word for puddle), borrowed from this small liquid and moving expanse, constituted by the accumulation of water.

Reflection, shadow and flower answer and repeat each other, just like the echo of water.
